Jenny McCarthy: Whoopi Goldberg Has "Addiction To Controlling" reports that former The View co-host Jenny McCarthy had a few things to say about Whoopi Goldberg.

Jenny McCarthy made statements about Whoopi Goldberg in Ramin Setoodeh’s book, Ladies Who Punch: The Explosive Inside Story of ‘The View.’:

In the pages, McCarthy detailed her short time on the show, from 2013-2014 saying:

I loved her in Ghost. I’m a fan. I thought I was going to work with the Whoopi that people thought they might know — fun and funny.

She said she was hit with what she believed was the reality that Whoopi Goldberg was way different in person. Jenny stated that she noticed that there was tension between Goldberg and Barbara Walters, who started The View back in 1997.

Jenny also revealed that Goldberg reportedly refused to let Walters do her job as the moderator.

It broke my heart when Barbara would shuffle to Whoopi and say, ‘Can I moderate, please?’ And Whoopi would say no. People don’t understand, Whoopi can knock over anyone in a debate. Her voice is strong not only in meaning but also in sound. I was able to get a point out in three words — like ‘I don’t agree’ — and that’s all I would be able to say. I would be stepped on or interrupted.

McCarthy said when she refused to “play kiss a**” with Goldberg this is what conspired:

To me, Whoopi had an addiction to controlling people’s thoughts, their words, the room, the table, your feeling, your mood. She had an addiction to controlling all of it and everybody.

Jenny concluded by saying after leaving she found a friend in Sherri Shepherd, who left around the same.

Wow, those things you don’t know about your favorite talk show hosts.
